As part of our UK marketing strategy, Gathering UK are launching a free online multiplayer game promoting the stunning upcoming PC title, Vietcong. Junglewar: Vietcong is inspired by the forthcoming PC game, which in turn is based on Vietnam's traumatic jungle warfare. You play as either US Special Forces, or as part of the defiant Vietcong army. Complete missions, gain points and upgrade your character skills to become the battle-hardened soldier feared by all. The premise behind Junglewar: Vietcong is to promote and build an early online community for Take 2's Vietcong game.
